I got this plant as Artemisia genipi, but after googling it, I'm not sure. My plant is about 60 cm high.

It looks to me like Tanacetum vulgare. (Tansy)

It's not Tanacetum vulgare. I have that one too and it looks and smells different.

Tanacetum parthenium "Golden Ball" Also looks a lot like that, it depends on how big the flower heads get.

I see what you mean Jonna, your plant doesn't appear to be A. genipi from googling pics -

http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artemisia_genipi

I thought tansy right away too. Although the foliage does appear similar to other artemisias.

I'm trying to remember the scent of Tansy when crushed... I seem to remember it being pretty strong, although that is probably no help, seeing as many of the Artemesias are also strongly scented.

This one does look like yours Jonna, although the foliage of yours is more finely cut, but maybe that can be variable, or yours is a cultivar...

Here is another that looks like yours..

Artemisia genipi:

From high, very high (up to 12,500 ft.) in the Alps comes this delightful little, silvery-woolly, shrubby aromatic plant. With finely cut leaves entirely covered with silky greyish-white hairs, it bears from July to September spikes of tiny yellow flowers.

Are you sure there is only one plant there? The leaves suggest two different plants! The ferny ones do look like they could be young Tanacetum vulgare leaves, the others look more like a type of prickly sow-thistle.

JRsbugs, I'm sure there is only on plant. I know the leaves look different, but I did make those pictures to show how different the leaves can be, depending on how 'old' they are. I'm 100% sure it's not Tanacetum vulgare orT. parthenium. I have both plants in my garden and they are really different.

Bonitin, I'm almost sure the plant is no cultivar. I got it from someone who only grows 'natural herbs'. She is German and she only knows the common German names. She told me it's 'Schwarze Edelraute' and after googling it, that resulted in Artemisia genipi, but when I googled Artemisia genipi, I got also pictures of other plants Confused Confused Confused
And like you noticed too: different sites give different plants

It is a mystery, Jona but the majority of the sites and the most thrustworthy ones give a very different plant than yours for Artemisia genipi! Shrug!

These are links to the plant I have, but they don't name it.
I can remember the woman who gave the plant to me, told me the famous 'Chartreuse' was made of it.

http://www.kraeuter-und-duftpflanzen.de/Pflanzen-und-Saatgut...
http://www.xn--kruterey-1za.com/Edelraute-schwarze-Chartreus...

Wikipedia obviously knows about the problems naming the right plant
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%A9n%C3%A9pi

After all the help and my own investigations, I'm sure it's not the A. genipi. I will post it on my website as: Artemisia NOID, good to make Chartreuse.
The smell is really very well.

Ah, used to make Chartreuse, then it might be artemisia absinthium? Lovey dubby
